Posts Tagged ‘water rail’

It’s been a blustery weekend, lots of sun, but a cold wind blows to remind us that it is winter in southern Spain.  I got all wrapped up and headed off to La Charca both today and yesterday.   All of the usual suspects are there, but I did manage to spy a couple of birds that I had not seen up close before.  The place was relatively busy too, there were lots of people quietly creeping around with smiles, while pointing fingers, binoculars and cameras in every direction.

Today I get to post my very first ever photos of these 3 birds.  Enjoy!
